Bug#571035: [squeeze alpha1] installationsreport: grub2: machine doesn't boot

OK. That means that the initramfs scripts think they *have* found the root 
FS and that it has been mounted, but that the kernel thinks differently.

To investigate the problem, please see the initramfs-tools man page, 
especially the 'debug' and 'break' options. The last allows you to force 
the initramfs into a debug shell at various points. Try 'break=bottom' and 
check what the status of the system is at that point.

Note: probably the initramfs-tools maintainer can help you better with this
